Midway Games has confirmed that it will be showcasing three stunning games at Game Stars Live 2004: NBA Ballers, PSI-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy, and an exclusive UK premiere of Mortal Kombat: Deception.

The latest offering from the massively successful long-running Mortal Kombat franchise, MK: Deception will be available for the UK public to play for the first time in the Over-18 zone at Game Stars Live 2004. Want to try your luck against Sub-Zero, Scorpion or Raiden? Brace yourself for some serious martial arts-style fighting that will appeal to longtime Mortal Kombat fans and next-generation gamers alike. MK: Deception is also the first 3D combat game to feature online gameplay for both PS2 and Xbox consoles.

Aside from this exclusive MK coup, PSI-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy will also be on hand, testing your psychic abilities and requiring you to fight with the powers of your mind, while NBA Ballers offers intense one-on-one competition with the likes of basketball legends Tracy McGrady, Magic Johnson and Wilt Chamberlain .

“Game Stars Live is shaping up to be THE consumer show for gamers,” commented Matt Broughton, European Marketing Director, Midway Games. “We’re very excited to showcase our titles in front of such a keen audience, especially Mortal Kombat Deception ñ on-site and available to play a full two months before release. Coupled with 10/10-scoring Psi-Ops, we’re sure these titles will draw crowds to the Over-18 zone.”

Leaders of the video game revolution since inception, Midway Games was responsible for early groundbreaking titles such as Robotron, Gauntlet, Defender and Spy Hunter. True to form, today’s releases are just as exciting, with recent blockbusters including The Suffering, Midway Arcade Treasures and the continuing Mortal Kombat series.

Game Stars Live is a brand new computer and video games exhibition, taking place at ExCeL in London’s Docklands on 1-5 September. Other exclusive game premieres include Halo 2 and Pro Evolution Soccer 4, whilst the event will also play host to the European Online Gaming Championships.
